July 10 – Heroic Firemen

Blinded by smoke in a burning house, three firemen rescued a trapped woman inside a rural home. The three men are being hailed as heroes. Similar true event such as that occur regularly right here in Atlantic Canada, and indeed all over the world. Firemen, and in some cases firewomen are unsung heroes. Such stories warm the heart and give us insights into selfless behavior. Paul wrote about this in his letter to the Romans with the following words; “One will scarcely die for a righteous person-though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die-but God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Christ’s death made His disciples sad, and His murderers glad. But God, in His great love for us provided the death of His son to take our punishment for sin. Amazing love! Have you experience it? Remember He has promised, “Whoever comes to me, I will never cast out.”
